He says, “Anyone can become Michael Jackson or Shah Rukh Khan or Ranbir Kapoor or Katrina Kaif, but end of the day it’s only you who carries your own personality”.


From the rudimentary knowledge of Jainism culled in the previous discussions one thing must have become obvious that Jainism is a religion of self-help : without any outside agency-even Godcoming to the rescue of the soul. The soul is its own destroyer or liberator. It is the wish fulfilling tree (Kalp Vriksha) and it is also the poisonous (shalimli) plant. The Soul has to acquire right vision and knowledge and follow the path of right conduct. Thereby it can become God itself, but no other God can help it (nor can it help any one else)except blazing a trail which has to be followed by one’s own effort and volition. It is a case of pure and simple rationalism- cut and dry, shorn of any sentimentality which is too evident elsewhere, where God is not only held as the creator, but also the destroyer and maintainer of life and therefore, responsible for all that is good or evil in the world. Jainism should, therefore, have no place for worship, only knowledge and conduct holding sway. However, we do find Jain temples, statutes, stupas and caves built over the last two thousand five hundred years being worshipped devoutly. Also there are hymns and prayers galore in Jain literature. Every Jain prays morning and evening as a part of his religious routine, worships in his temples much like his other brethren - Christians in churches, Mohammedans in mosques, Sikhs in Gurudwaras and Hindus in their temples. Much of this praying by Jains is imitating others, due to the mutual influence between Jainism and other faiths. Even some Jains bathe in Ganges to expiate the sins. Then there is the practical approach (vyavhar)due to which Jains, forgetting the intrinsic beliefs, fall in line and pray like others for boons, after all this is the easier way than the harder path of right conduct with its vows and penance. Then the concept of an all powerful creator, preserver, and destroyer responsible for all that is good and bad is more appealing. As, thus one can shrink from his responsibility and leave everything to the will and mercy of such a creator rather than accept full responsibility for one’s past, present and future. However, there is a place for worship and prayer in Jainism and the reason and justification for the same is admirably summarized by Pujayapadacharya while beginning his commentary Sarvarth Siddhi on Tatvarth in the following terms:

Moksamargasya netaram, bhettaram karam bhu bhratham Gyataram labdhye.




To the leaders on the path of liberation, Destroyers of mountains of Karmas, Knowers of the whole of reality, I bow to acquire their qualities. Accordingly, worship and prayer is offered by the Jains to the qualities of the leaders on the path-the quality of right knowledge and right conduct by which they have destroyed the bondage of the Karma. The purpose is that such qualities may be acquired by the worshipper by following in the footsteps of the leaders-after all one learns by example. Nowhere it is intended, however, that the leader will carry the follower, or even hold his hand. Further there is an important place given to veneration or reverence under penance-as indicated in the previous chapter-as a means of destroying the bondage of Karma besides teaching humility and modesty. Thus we find that the Jains offer, a five fold worship which is universally practiced by all sects of Jains and is given the name of Namaskar mantra credited with many a miraculous quality. This Mantra is supposed to contain the cream of all scriptures of the Jains and is as under : 1.Namo Arihantanam- I bow to the Arihants - the omniscient personages. 2.Namo Siddhanam- I bow to the Siddhas- the bodiless liberated souls. 3.Namo Ayariyanam- I bow to the Acharyas- the Heads of the order. 4.Namo Uvazzayanam- I bow to the Upadhyaysthe head teacher saints 5.Namo loye Sav Sahunam - I bow to all the saints in the universe. We can briefly describe each of these five worships as under:

1. Arihants-Literally the word ari means enemies and hant means destroyer, and therefore, Arihant is destroyer of enemies. but these enemies are not external enemies, but the internal enemies of the soul- the four passions- anger, pride, deceit and greed which give rise to Karma bondage. Those living beings who have destroyed these internal enemies completely and are free from the Karma bondage of the major types are called Arihants. This is the highest stage a living being can reach with body. These Arihants possess perfect vision, perfect knowledge and perfect conduct. Their very presence spreads peace and prosperity all round. They inspire veneration in all living beings. They preach and convert by their words one and all to the noble path of nonviolence, self control and penance, which they propagate. Due to destruction of Karmas bondage like knowledge obstructing Karmas etc. they possess infinite knowledge (which enables a perfect knowledge of the past present and future as also of the entire universe and non-universe)infinite vision, infinite prowess and infinite bliss. 2. Siddhas-These are liberated souls who have attained salvation having completely destroyed all the Karmas. They have as such no encumbrance including that of a body. Besides, possessing perfect knowledge, vision, bliss and prowess these are neither heavy nor light, have penetrability and are beyond sense perception as they are non-material. They are free from cycle of births and deaths. They have thus attained Godhood, but they maintain their individual identity, though they all being alike, are indistinguishable like different rays of pure light. 3. This is the ideal for which every living being strives, the Arihants also become Siddhas after leaving their body (on expiation of minor Karmas). Actually arihanthood is a stage on the way to siddhahood. Thus strictly speaking Siddhas should get precedent over Arihants in the order of worship but the first place is given to Arihants. The reason is that it is the Arihants who having learnt the whole truth, preach the same to the toiling creatures to enable them to proceed

on the noble path, to the destination of Siddhahood. 4. Acharyas-They are Jain monks or saints who are heads of the order or the group of not only saints but also of the four fold organization of Jains-monks, nuns, laymen and lay women. They not only follow the rules of conduct for the monks strictly but also ensure that the monks under them do so-as also the entire lay community follows the rules framed for them .They teach the right conduct and punish the delinquents to bring them on the right path. They are the spiritual heads of Jains and are responsible for the preservation and propagation of the noble path. 5. Upadhyays-They are monks who are responsible for the study of scriptures and dissemination of their knowledge, amongst the monks and the laity. While the acharyas are the heads who administer and maintain discipline in the Sangha, the Upadhyays look after the teaching of the scriptures. They are thus the spiritual teachers. 6. Saints or Monks-Those who have renounced the world for spiritual search are monks. Under right conduct we have seen the duties prescribed for monks. These are briefly the observance of five major vows (Mahavrata) three controls (guptis), five types of vigilance (Samitis), ten commandments (dharma), twelve penances (tap) etc. The monks are required to observe these rules strictly.

SHOW PEOPLE THE WORLD THEY WANT TO SEE What Does A Tour Operator Do ? Tour operators organise and arrange package holidays, which are either sold through travel agencies or marketed direct to the public. Career as Tour Operator Holidays are meant to relax, to rejuvenate your energy, and to spend quality time with your loved ones. To fulfill this task efficiently, it is imperative to have the best tour operator as your travel planner, who has got the experience, infrastructure, commitment, and is a real professional to plan your holidays. A tour operator typically combines tour and travel components to create a holiday. Tour operators organize tours to various tourist destinations and manage the travel and stay of the tourists. Tour operators need people for selling the concept and then to accompany the groups to the destinations. They arrange modes of transportation, accommodation, and lunch and dinner for their clients. Course Details No specific course has been prescribed for becoming a tour operator. With sufficient practical experience in this field, along with adequate capital, one can develop into a successful and proficient tour operator. However, pursuing a Degree/Diploma/Certificate course in Travel and Tourism can give one a professional outlook and provide an edge over other candidates. While most of these courses have set the minimum qualification to 10+2 pass, others require a Bachelor’s degree to apply for admission. Besides, there are Tourism and Travel management courses which are more advantageous for tour operators. Potential tour operators need to have certain desirable skills, such as good interpersonal skills, good oral and written skills, competent organizational and sales skills, excellent communication skills both over the telephone and face-to-face, a competent grasp of geography, and ability to cope under pressure with enthusiasm, flexibility, confidence, more than obtaining degrees or diplomas in this field. Career Prospects The best option available to a tour operator is setting up his/her own tour and travel agency. However, before establishing his/her own venture, he/she should have ample practical experience of

conducting tour operations. Besides, one should have adequate capital to start a tour company. However, one can also work with tour/travel companies as a tour operator. Tour operators can seek suitable employment opportunities in government tourism departments also. Institutes Offering Any course related to the travel and tourism sector can give you an insight into tour operations. Such courses are available in various colleges across India. Some important institutions are: the Government of India Tourist Offices; Indian Institute of Tourism and Travel Management (IITTM) at New Delhi, Kolkata and Gwalior; Kurukshetra University, Haryana; Delhi University, Delhi; Annamalai University, Tamil Nadu; MS University, Baroda; National Institute of Tourism and Hospitality Management, Hyderabad; Tezpur University, Assam; Institute of Tourism and Future Management, Chandigarh; Guwahati University, Guwahati; Utkal University, Puri, Orissa; University of Calcutta, Kolkata; Maharshi Dayanand University, Haryana; Himachal Pradesh University, Shimla; Agra University, Agra; Awadh University, Madhya Pradesh; and Mahatma Gandhi Kashi Vidyapith, Varanasi. Remuneration Career of a tour operator is highly remunerative. A trainee tour operator working with a travel/tour company can easily earn Rs. 8,000 - 15,000 per month. On gaining 5-7 years of experience, one can set up his own tour operation company. Income in self-employment venture depends upon the nature and size of the business. An operator’s duties will include making travel arrangements and organising accommodation, sightseeing trips, etc. The Indian travel industry is leading the worldwide growth and travel agents are faced with travellers who want the best deal, and the latest information at their fingertips. To cater to this increasing demand, tour operators need to have the right experience, knowledge and dedication to act as a professional tour planners to create memorable holidays for their customers. Therefore, everything from the right sales attitude to profound knowledge of back-end processes is a must for aspirants who want to make a career in tour operations.

THE 7 WONDERS OF WINTER As temperatures plummet in the Northern Hemisphere, why not enjoy some of the great travel experiences that only a big chill can bring. We look at the world’s top seven winterland marvels, as chosen by Lonely Planet authors: 1. THE NORTHERN LIGHTS OF CANADA It’s the middle of night, in the middle of nowhere. It’s so dark that you can hold your hand three inches from your face and not see it. The silence is so complete that the low thud of snow falling from a nearby tree makes you jump. Your eyelashes are close to frozen and it’s a struggle to separate them when you blink. And yet you’d happily sit there all night, for many nights to come, for the chance to see nature’s most mysterious sight: the northern lights. With little light pollution, optimum weather conditions (very cold, with plenty of clear nights) and its position directly beneath the primeviewing zone of the auroral oval, Churchill in Canada is one of the best places in the world to see the northern lights. The Arctic tundra and boreal forest surrounding the town see over 300 nights of auroral activity each year. Displays might last hours, or be gone in a minute. Flashing neon pink, turquoise and green, the lights swirl across the sky in myriad imagined shapes (is that a walrus, a witch, a whale?) before whipping back on themselves and disappearing. In the presence of such a spectacle, it’s easy to believe local Inuit myth that the aurora borealis are signals from the afterlife, particularly if you hear the sky crackle and swoosh as some claim. What is in no doubt during those moments when the lights whirl above your head is that you’re part of the greatest show on earth. 2. ICEBOUND ST PETERSBURG January in St Petersburg. The city’s residents, long used to the cold, don fur hats and heavy coats to stand in line. Nowadays, they wait not for bread, but for art: frozen art. Every winter, sculptors transform blocks of ice into elaborate models of people,

animals and objects. It’s a tradition that dates back to 1740, when an entire ice palace was constructed to celebrate the birthday of the Empress Anna. Set against a backdrop of golden domes sparkling in the light of the low sun, the exhibit embodies the magic of St Petersburg in winter. Locals bypass the city’s bridges, slithering over the ice-covered rivers and canals to make their way across town. The Neva River is frozen solid, except for one large hole in front of the Peter Paul Fortress. This is the plunge pool for the Walrus Club, a group of swimmers who exhort the health benefits of a daily dip. When the cold finally seeps in, Petersburgers warm up with a vodka, served in an ice glass, from the ice bar. ‘At least we can do something with all this ice other than slipping and falling on it!’ observes one happy patron. 3. SWEDEN’S REINDEER MIGRATION One of the world’s greatest migrations takes place each year just over a thousand miles north of Britain. As snow thickens on every surface, lakes freeze over and the temperature drops below -25˚C, tens of thousands of reindeer make their way across northern Sweden. Descending from summer pastures in the mountains to the west, the herds travel east to spend the long winter foraging in the forests. Accompanying them on a journey that can take ten days or more are their seminomadic Sami owners. While herding methods may have modernised over the centuries (snowmobiles – and even helicopters – have replaced snowshoes), reindeer husbandry is still a cornerstone of their culture. To fall in with the Sami and their herds is to be part of a heritage that stretches back millennia – one of days dictated by the pace of the reindeers’ steady trot, and of nights sharing stories round the fire under a chill, star-filled sky. 4. ITALY’S SUNKEN BELL Head to Italy’s South Tyrol this winter and you’re likely to come across one of Europe’s most bizarre sights – an apparently amputated church spire poking out from the frozen waters of Lago di Resia. The 14th-century bell tower, pointing like an arrow to the blustery skies above, is a forlorn monument to an entire village drowned beneath the waters of an artificial lake created as part of a hydroelectricity project in the 1950s.

Locals will tell you that the tolling of its church bell can still be heard on a cold night – even though the bell was removed when the valley was flooded. Tall tales may have sprung up around it, but the church and the lake are very much part of local life, particularly in winter. Snow-kiters twirl across the ice, leaping high into the air as their kites catch a gust of wind, keeping an eye out for ice-skaters gliding around the lake’s perimeter. Families slip and slide their way to the base of the tower, eager to slap their gloved hands on a piece of history that’s out of reach most of the year. 5. YELLOWSTONE’S BOILING WATERS There are few places as beguiling as Yellowstone National Park. It is a landscape created by grinding glaciers and volcanic eruptions, a place of fire and brimstone where the very earth breathes, belches and bubbles like a giant kettle on the boil. Here, in a land roamed by moose, bears and wolves, geysers and hot springs seethe and simmer and finally blow, capturing the imagination as they have done since the park’s inception in 1872. It is America made wild and primaeval. As the temperature drops and the snow piles high, the park takes on a special drama and grace. The tourist crowds thin, replaced by cross-country skiers silently swooshing along marked trails. Shaggy-coated bison pick their way through the deep snow to warm themselves in geyser basins, waiting for a waft of hot stream from shimmering thermal pools. They retreat a few paces as a hot spring suddenly erupts, sending an arc of boiling water high into the frigid air. 6. KOREA’S ICE FESTIVALS For much of the year, the sancheoneo – a species of trout – leads a blameless life in the rivers around Hwacheon, a town that lies in the mountains northeast of Seoul. When the cold, dry Korean winter arrives, the rivers freeze over and

the sancheoneo disappear under 40cm of ice. And then the trouble starts.

Every January, the Hwacheon Sancheoneo Ice Festival brings a sudden energy to this quiet corner of the country. Hundreds of thousands of thickly clad visitors swarm over every frozen surface to try their hand at ice-fishing. Barbecues come as naturally to Koreans as baguettes to the French, and the smell of charcoal fires wafts along the banks, ready for the latest catch. For a few visitors, dropping a line through a hole in the ice to catch their fish is just not enough of an experience. Dressed in T-shirts and shorts, they plunge into a pool of near freezing water and learn just what slippery customers trout can be. 7. SNOWBOUND LONDON Ten o’clock on a Monday morning in central London. No buses steam down Piccadilly, belching passengers at every stop. There are no crowds jostling for space on the pavements of Oxford Street and the doors of its department stores remain locked. The tubes stand empty in their tunnels, planes are grounded at Heathrow. The few people who’ve made it into work in the City turn back when they find their offices closed. This is not the scene from an apocalyptic Day of the Triffids-style film, but the reality of life in the capital on the rare occasion it lies under a thick blanket of snow. The streets empty and all activity migrates to the parks. On Hampstead Heath, a running club has given up shuffling through the snow and is rolling a giant snowball down to the banks of the pond. In Richmond Park, the resident deer paw at the frozen earth, looking for twigs and shrubs. Far to the east in Greenwich, a borough’s worth of schoolchildren celebrate their unexpected day off by tobogganing down from the Royal Observatory, the distant skyscrapers of Canary Wharf barely visible through the grey murk. Back in the centre, snow falls steadily on a deserted London, bestowing on anyone who ventures onto its streets the unimaginable magic of having a city all to themselves.

15 TRAINING AND FITNESS TIPS 1. Keep Muscles Limber: In golf it is important to be loose, because tension restricts our range of motion and flexibility. Lack of flexibility will hinder performance on the links. Here’s the fix… If you’re under 40, hold your stretches for 30 seconds. If you’re over 40, hold them for 60 seconds. As you reach your 40s, your muscles become less pliable, so they need to be stretched longer. Stay limber and you’ll be playing better golf. Spend twice as much time stretching your tight muscles as your flexible muscles. Focus on problem areas instead of muscles that are already flexible. Typical problem areas for golf: hamstrings, shoulders, and lower back. 2. Strengthen Your Core Core muscles are a huge player in sports. Don’t be afraid of situps. Here’s why: Situps increase your range of motion, which makes your abdominals work harder and longer. (Doing crunches on a Swiss ball or with a rolled-up towel under your lower back has a similar effect.) Just avoid situps with anchored feet, which can hurt your lower back. Also remember to protect your neck. Put your tongue on the roof of your mouth when you do crunches. 3. Grow Muscle, Save Time Here’s a subject that is brought up and re-hashed often. Keep your weight training workouts under an hour. After 60 minutes, your body starts producing more of the stress hormone cortisol, which can have a testosterone-blocking, muscle-wasting effect. Now, this isn’t saying that you can’t train longer than 60 minutes, it just means that the time spent training and lifting weights after an hour will not be as effective as the first 60 minutes.

4. Exercise in Order Use dumbbells, barbells, and machines (in that order). The smaller, stabilizer muscles you use with dumbbells fatigue before your larger muscle groups. So progress to machines, which require less help from your smaller muscles, as you grow tired. 5. Drink A Pint, Get Ripped If you’re a beginner, train to failure—the point at which you absolutely can’t do another repetition—then throw back a pint (protein shake) . In a new study, beginners who trained to failure with three sets of six exercises per day then drank a supplement immediately afterward gained over 5 pounds of muscle in just 8 weeks. A pint of 1 percent chocolate milk will provide all the nutrients you need to achieve the same result. 6. Pick Up Your Pace Increase the speed of your running strides (not their length) to get faster. Your foot should always land under your body, rather than out in front of it, and you should push-off with the toes of your rear leg for propulsion. Also when lifting weights, if you increase the pace of your reps and cut the time in between sets, your weight training will double as some cardio exercise. Do the same amount of exercise in 10 percent less time. It forces your muscles to work harder and improves your endurance at the same time. If it takes you 30 minutes to do a full-body workout on Monday, try to do it in 27 minutes on Wednesday. 7. Ride More Efficiently Practice cycling onelegged to ride more efficiently. This forces you to concentrate on pulling up at the bottom of the stroke, which better distributes the work among the major leg muscles. Lock both feet on your pedals, but let your left leg go limp while you do all the work with your right leg. Do this for 30 seconds, then switch legs. Ride normally for 5 minutes, then repeat the drill. Continue this way for a 20- to 30-minute workout.

8. Save Your Joints Decrease the weight by 10 percent when you change your grip. So, for example, if you’ve been benchpressing 135 pounds for 10 repetitions with a medium grip, drop to 120 pounds when you switch to a wide grip. You’ll be stressing your joints and muscles in a different way than they’re used to, which can cause injury.

12. Improve Balance Use a sofa cushion to improve your balance. Stand one-legged on the cushion and move a medicine ball (or a 1-gallon milk jug or heavy phone book) from hand to hand, side to side, and behind your head. Once you’ve mastered the move, try it with your eyes closed. You’ll improve your balance, coordination, and body control, all important athletic attributes.

9. Improve Quickness For faster foot speed in sports, try this move: Start with your feet hipwidth apart and your hands at your sides. Lift your left foot in front of you, touch it with your right hand, and lower it to the floor. Lift your right foot, touch it with your left hand, and lower it. Then touch your left foot behind you with your right hand, then your right foot behind you with your left hand. Go for 20 seconds at a time, moving as fast as you can, and repeat for a total of three to five sets. 10. Eat Vegetables & Grow Eat Vegetables to grow more muscle. A study reported in the compared two groups of older male weight lifters: One group ate meat, the other vegetables. Both groups grew stronger, but only the Vegetarian gained significant muscle. 11. Build Arms Faster Work opposing muscle groups (your biceps and triceps, for instance) back-to-back for a faster workout. While one muscle is working, the other is forced to rest. You won’t need as much time between sets. Also, if you bend your wrists you will work your biceps harder. That is, extend them backward slightly (and hold them that way) while you do arm curls.

13. Double Dip Benefits Short and sweet… Do dips with your elbows in and your body straight to work your triceps. But lean forward and flare them out to focus on your chest.

14. Drink Up, Get Lean Drink low-fat milk (even if consumed in a shake). Scientists in Canada found that people who consumed more than 600 milligrams of calcium a day (roughly the amount in 2 cups of milk, a cup of broccoli, and a half cup of cottage cheese) had lower body fat than those who consumed less than 600 milligrams a day. 15. Multiply Your Muscles Follow this simple formula to build more muscle: Multiply the amount of weight you lift for a particular exercise by the total number of times you lift it. Try to increase that number every workout by lifting heavier weights, increasing your repetitions, or doing more sets.

WHAT ARE WINDOWS XP’S MOST HELPFUL, YET HIDDEN FEATURES? Sometimes, the most useful features of a new operating system aren’t mentioned in the billion dollar marketing campaign. Here a few of my favorite tips and tricks to help you get the most out of Windows XP. None of these are earth shakers, but I’ll bet you’ll begin incorporating at least a few of them into your own copy of XP. PUT THE SPEAKER VOLUME CONTROL ICON BACK ON THE TASKBAR In its preoccupation with keeping the Windows XP desktop free of clutter, Microsoft also removed a few essentials. For example, the programmers removed the little speaker icon from its spot next to the clock on the Taskbar. A click on the speaker icon lets you turn down the volume quickly and easily. This might not seem like much, but it’s a quick fix during late night Web surfing when a newly visited site begins blasting a loud Star Warstheme. To place the volume control icon back next to the clock, follow these steps: Open the Control Panel from the Start menu. Click the Sounds Speech and Audio Devices icon. (Depending how your Control Panel is set up, you may need to click the Sounds and Audio Devices icon, instead.) Click “Adjust the system volume.” Click in the box marked “Place volume icon in the taskbar.” Click the OK button, and the little Speaker icon appears next to the clock, where it should be. Update: A bug in Windows XP sometimes keeps the Volume icon from appearing, even when you’ve followed these instructions. Some have suggested logging off Windows XP and logging back on again as a temporary workaround. Others have found temporary success with this trick: Right-click a blank part of the taskbar and select Task Manager. Select explorer.exe and choose the End Task button. Click the Applications Tab, click the New Task button and type this: explorer.exe Click the OK button. Although these certainly aren’t the best solutions, they might work for you in the short run. MAKE WINDOWS SET YOUR COMPUTER’S CLOCK AUTOMATICALLY For years, little add-on utilities have let your computer visit one of the nation’s atomic clocks,

read the time, and automatically set your clock to the exact second. Now, after killing off competing Web browsers, disk defragmenters, and other programs, Microsoft’s taking aim at the clock setting programs: Windows XP comes with that feature built-in. To set it, follow these steps: Double-click the clock in your Taskbar. Click the Internet Time tab. Choose the option marked “Automatically synchronize with an Internet time server.” Windows then synchronizes your clock automatically on a weekly basis. (If you don’t have a continuous connection to the Internet, click the Update Now button whenever you’re connected, so Windows XP will know when to contact the atomic clock.) If you’re having problems with the feature, look up Time Synchronization in the Help program to see what’s wrong. NETWORK TWO COMPUTERS WITH A SINGLE CABLE Many people will buy a new computer with Windows XP already installed. Bringing a second computer into the household opens up a new opportunity: a network! By connecting the two computers, you can quickly and easily send files back and forth between them. Plus, with Windows XP’s Internet Connect Sharing feature, both computers can link to a single modem and Web surf at the same time. Many new computers already come with a preinstalled network card. To complete the network, buy a network card for your old computer and, to save money, buy a single “crossed cable” to connect the two computers. That spares the expense of a more costly “hub” or “switchbox.” Connect the two network cards with the special “crossed cable,” and you’ve created an inexpensive and speedy network for two computers. GIVE WINDOWS XP THE FAMILIAR “CLASSIC” LOOK Using Windows XP’s new interface is like getting into a rental car: It’s difficult to find anything, and when you push the turn signal, the windshield wipers go on. I’m not too fond of Microsoft’s initial “Teletubbies” wallpaper, either. Luckily, you can make Windows XP ditch its dorky duds and look just like your older, more familiar versions of Windows, as described in this tip.

WHAT IS SYSTEMATIC INVESTMENT PLAN OR SIP? SIP works on the principle of regular investments. It is like your recurring deposit where you put in a small amount every month. It allows you to invest in a MF by making smaller periodic investments (monthly or quarterly) in place of a heavy onetime investment i.e. SIP allows you to pay 10 periodic investments of Rs 500 each in place of a one-time investment of Rs 5,000 in an MF. Thus, you can invest in an MF without altering your other financial liabilities. It is imperative to understand the concept of rupee cost averaging and the power of compounding to better appreciate the working of SIPs. SIP has brought mutual funds within the reach of an average person as it enables even those with tight budgets to invest Rs 500 or Rs 1,000 on a regular basis in place of making a heavy, one-time investment.

amount every year at the age of 35. When they attained the age of 60 respectively, A had built a corpus of Rs 12.23 lakh while person B's corpus was only Rs 7.89 lakh. For this example, a rate of return of 8% compounded has been assumed. So the difference of Rs 50,000 in amount invested made a difference of more than Rs 4 lakh to their end-corpus. That difference is due to the effect of compounding. The longer the compounding period, the higher the returns. Now, instead of investing Rs 10,000 each year, suppose A invested Rs 50,000 after every five years, starting at the age of 35. The total amount invested, thus remains the same -- Rs 3 lakh. However, when he is 60, his corpus will be Rs 10.43 lakh. Again, he loses the advantage of compounding in the early years.

While making small investments through SIP may not seem appealing at first, it enables investors to get into the habit of saving. And over the years, it can really add up and give you handsome returns. A monthly SIP of Rs 1000 at the rate of 9% would grow to Rs 6.69 lakh in 10 years, Rs 17.83 lakh in 30 years and Rs 44.20 lakh in 40 years.

3. Rupee cost averaging This is especially true for investments in equities. When you invest the same amount in a fund at regular intervals over time, you buy more units when the price is lower. Thus, you would reduce your average cost per share (or per unit) over time. This strategy is called 'rupee cost averaging'. With a sensible and long-term investment approach, rupee cost averaging can smoothen out the market's ups and downs and reduce the risks of investing in volatile markets.

Even for the cash-rich, SIPs reduces the chance of investing at the wrong time and losing their sleep over a wrong investment decision. However, the true benefit of an SIP is derived by investing at lower levels. Other benefits include:

People who invest through SIPs capture the lows as well as the highs of the market. In an SIP, your average cost of investing comes down since you will go through all phases of the market, bull or bear.

1. Discipline The cardinal rule of building your corpus is to stay focused, invest regularly and maintain discipline in your investing pattern. A few hundreds set aside every month will not affect your monthly disposable income. You will also find it easier to part with a few hundreds every month, rather than set aside a large sum for investing in one shot.

4. Convenience This is a very convenient way of investing. You have to just submit cheques along with the filled up enrolment form. The mutual fund will deposit the cheques on the requested date and credit the units to one's account and will send the confirmation for the same.

2. Power of compounding Investment gurus always recommend that one must start investing early in life. One of the main reasons for doing that is the benefit of compounding. Let's explain this with an example. Person A started investing Rs 10,000 per year at the age of 30. Person B started investing the same

5. Other advantages 路 There are no entry or exit loads on SIP investments. 路 Capital gains, wherever applicable, are taxed on a first-in, first-out basis.

THE NASAL WONDER WHO HAS CREATED A NICHE FOR HIMSELF – HIMESH RESHMMIYA Himesh Reshammiya was born in Mumbai, Maharashtra to veteran Indian music director Vipin Reshammiya and Madhu Reshammiya; however his family originates from Bhavnagar, Gujarat. Reshammiya studied at Hill Grange High School in Pedder Road where he met his best friend Prashant Chadha. Chadha was responsible for Reshammiya's look with a cap and for directing all of his music videos from his private album Aap Kaa Surroor as well as promotional videos for the movies Aashiq Banaya Aapne , Aksar and Tom Dick Harry . Music and film career Reshammiya’s first big break came through his good friend Salman Khan. Khan gave Reshammiya the chance to be a music director for the movie Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya along with composers Sajid-Wajid and Jatin Lalit. After the success of the album, Khan and Reshammiya have shared many hit filmi albums together, such as Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya, Yeh Hai Jalwa, and Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge. He had his first success as a music director of the 2003 film, Tere Naam. After a series of successful films as music director, he entered playback singing with the film Aashiq Banaya Aapne, the songs of which went on to become hits. As a singer, he churned out songs like Tera Suroor, Zara Jhoom Jhoom and Tanhaiyanwhich were successful. Reshammiya's music has a style of composition which is based on a fusion of Western and Indian classical music withtechno beats. He started his acting career with his debut film, Aap Kaa Surroor - The Real Luv Story. In August 2010, it was announced that music video director Roman White is going to direct videos of Reshammiya's first international album in English, named @ Da Edge, which is to be released in 2012. The album will be released in 122 countries. Reshammiya was the first Indian singer to perform at the Wembley Arena and the Heineken music hall in Amsterdam.

Before becoming a music director, Reshammiya produced several television serials, like Amar Prem and Andaaz on Zee TV. He also composed the title song of both. Reshammiya was actively involved in mentoring and judging the singing competition, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge on Zee TV. His group was known asRock Gharana. He was the winning mentor of the show in 2007. In 2009, Vaishali Made, a female contestant from his Rock Gharana, won the singing competition. He is also the team captain, judge and mentor on STAR Plus's show, Music Ka Maha Muqqabla for the team Himesh's Warriors. Reshammiya is also judging the musical reality show Sur Kshetra which is currently being telecasted on Colors (TV channel).Himesh Reshammiya appeared as the special guest in the Grand Finale of 'Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar' 2. Himesh is also training the top 4 contestants.

Reshammiya's music falls almost entirely in the electronic music genre. The extensive use of loops and addition of melodic hooks to his songs adds to their mass appeal. Alleged copyright violation In his debut film as an actor, Aap Kaa Surroor The Real Luv Story, Reshammiya added a song Tanhaiyaan from Boney Kapoor's proposed film Milenge Milenge. Initially, Reshammiya had composed the song for Kapoor's film but later decided to use it for his own movie. Tips, which held the audio rights of Milenge Milenge, accused Reshammiya of copyright violation, as audio rights for Aap Kaa Surroor - The Real Luv Story were acquired by T-Series. However, Reshammiya defended himself saying that he had made Kapoor listen to the song, but it was not included inMilenge Milenge. He also claimed to have tried to get in touch with Kapoor for seven months, and since there was no progress on the

film, he decided to use the song for his own movie. But at the time of release of Milenge Milenge, Himesh Reshammiya has once again composed a new song called Kuch to baaki hai for the promotions of the movie, which went on to become a smash hit.

Abhishek, Sudesh Kapil, Purbi Joshi and the others wished Himesh on the success of Khiladi 786. At the event, the crooner even said that the real Khiladi was Akshay Kumar who deserves all the credit of the film becoming a success. According to a trade source, “Khiladi 786 has crossed Rs 60 crore in nine days’ time and is going strong in the second week as well due to strong word-of-mouth. So in all probability, another Rs 20 crore is expected from the second week plus satellite rights (Rs 30 crore) plus music rights (Rs 5 crore) not to forget, overseas and video rights. Going by the numbers, Khiladi 786 is a superhit already in its first week and is Himesh’s fifth hit film in a row that has touched gold.”

Himesh Reshammiya celebrated the success of Khiladi 786 with the Comedy Circus gang. And for the occasion, Himesh performed a medley of his most recent 25 hit songs from Bodyguard, Bol Bachchan, OMG: Oh My God!, Son of Sardaar and of course, his latest co-production with Akshay Kumar. Himesh Reshammiya is on a high with his fifth hit in a row. He's also excited about his songs being remixed for the upcoming New Year parties. The creator of tunes like Teri Meri Meri Teri Prem Kahani (Bodyguard), Chalao Na Naino Se Baan Re(Bol Bachchan), Go Go Govinda ( OMG! Oh My God), Rani Tu Main Raja ( Son Of Sardaar), Balmaand Hookah Bar ( Khiladi 786) has reason to celebrate, as his tracks will be used as party numbers on December 31.

Sohail Khan, Archana Puran Singh and the entire Comedy Circus participants including Krushna

It’s one am in the morning. And I have had the same song playing on loop on my laptop for the last three hours. It’s been written, composed and sung by Himesh Reshammiya. The song is Tera Pyar Pyar Pyar Hookah Bar from the Akshay Kumar starrer Khiladi 786. There is something very infectious about the song. I can’t really figure out why I am hooked onto it. I guess in this day and age of complex multilayered songs this is a simple tune which one can hum.

With the music of Khiladi 786 Reshammiya is well and truly back. The album has the music director who for a brief period became more famous for his hair weaving, crooning songs in his famous (or should we say infamous) nasal twang. If you thought Aashiq Banaya Aapne was too much then try listening to Lonely Lonely Tere Bin and you might find yourself shouting O Banwariya by the end of it. The song has Yo Yo Honey Singh rapping along with Reshamiya.

For those who are the old fashioned kind and prefer people singing through their mouth and not through their nose will appreciate Saari Saari Raat Soye Na Hum. Okay, I have to admit that there is a slight nasal twang in Himesh’s voice even in this song. But then the nasal twang is to Himesh what yoddling was to Kishore Kumar. Himesh Reshammiya burst onto the scene as a singer with the big hit Aashiq Banaya Aapne. The nasal twang in his voice reminded me of the Pakistani singer Hasan Jehangir who sang the hit song Hawa Hawa in the late 1980s (The video of the song that I have uploaded is from this movie called Don 2 and try spotting the rather dilapidated Shah Rukh Khan’s Mannat in the background).

Ranchi while visiting my parents in 2007 and humming a song called Jummerat from Phir Hera Pheri all day long.

And I was surprised. I wasn’t supposed to like Himesh bhai. Okay, I told myself, this is a temporary phenomenon and I would soon get over it. But the fact of the matter was I liked what I heard. It was fashionable to listen to the non hummable songs of A R Rahman but Himesh’s music was for the auto-rickshaw drivers. As a columnist in the Daily News and Analysis asked in July 2007 “Only autowallahs and taxi-drivers listen to his kind of music,” I was told. Hawa Hawa achieved cult status and rose to as high as the second position on the Cibaca Sangeet Mala (or was it Cibaca Geet Mala, I really don’t remember). Back then it was the only countdown show and used to be on air every Monday at eight o’ clock on Vividh Bharti (It had moved from Radio Ceylon by then). Years later I was devastated to know that the song was not an original had been copied from the song Havar Havar sung by the Iranian singer Kourosh Yaghmaei. Okay, Okay, I am deviating, but that’s the trouble with writing on movies and music. So we were talking about Reshammiya and I thought his voice had a nasal twang which was similar to that of Hasan Jehangir but the twang was much more pronounced in this case and I also thought that like Jehangir before him, Reshamiya would be a one song wonder. But I, like a lot of others, was hopelessly wrong on this one. He belted out one hit after another as a singer as well as a music director. The irony of course was that even though everyone was listening to his songs no one would admit to the same. I realised this on a random rainy day in

“We who sit in the passenger seat don’t.” Oh! This raised more fundamental questions in my mind. So, apparently, when Himess(Himesh Reshammiya i.e.) became the first Indian to perform at the Wembley, all of India’s auto, taxi and truck drivers must have flown to London to attend his concert? Or perhaps it was attended only by London’s taxi-drivers?” “And what about the savvy lot who run our FM channels? They all know that their target audience is the young, cool, hip, urban, intelligent, upwardly mobile (or Ipod/Iphone),” the columnist went onto ask. In between, all this Reshammiya decided to become a hero. And at the same time decided to give music only in those movies in which he starred. His first film as a hero was Aap Ka Suroor. The nasal twang of Reshammiya reached monstrous proportions with the song O Huzoor – Tera Tera Tera Suroor. Other than having ten songs sung by Reshamiya it also had for the very first time in the history of Hindi cinema the hero wearing a baseball cap throughout the movie. The next one was Karzzz. But even all the extra zzz’s and Reshammiya without the baseball cap could not save the movie at the box office.

Ironically this was a remake of the earlierKarz made by Subhash Ghai. Ghai had ripped off the movie from The Reincarnation of Peter Proud and still got paid Rs 3 crore for the remake rights. Talk about having your cake and eating it too.

There are very few singers who made it big as actors. One of course was the great Kishore Kumar. But his best songs came after he had more or less quit acting. The only true singing superstar that Hindi cinema has ever had is Kundan Lal Saigal who drunk himself to death at a young age of 43 because he had this thing in his head that he sang better when he was drunk. By the time he realised this mistake it was too late (Dr Rajkumar, the kannada superstar, sang a lot of his own songs. He also sang bhajans). Ashok Kumar also sang his own song during the days when cinema did not have any playback but gave it up as soon as technology allowed trained playback singers to takeover.

Himesh Reshammiya’s next film as a hero was Radio. The film had some fantastic music and I personally feel its Reshamiya’s best album till date. It includes a personal favouriteDaamad Ji Angna Main Padhare which Reshammiya has sung along with Kailash Kher. His next film Kajraare directed by the former actress Pooja Bhatt saw a fairly limited release (in two cinema halls if I remember correctly). And Himesh’s acting career was more or less over after this. But Reshammiya was only trying to do what a lot of other famous singers have done in the past i.e. become a hero. Mukesh stopped singing for a while in the early 50s when he wanted to become a hero and decided to sing only for himself. The dashing Talat Mehmood went through the same phase of wanting to become a hero and soon other singers were singing for superstar Dilip Kumar. In the early 70s Shailendra Singh was Rishi Kapoor’s voice in Bobby. But he had acting aspirations as well and became neither a famous singer nor a famous actor. In the recent years Sonu Nigam has fallen into the same trap and is no longer the top male playback singer.

The moral of the story for Himesh bhai is that he should stick to what he knows best and i.e. giving music and belting out superhit songs with a nasal twang. In the meanwhile I am waiting for his next song with a nasal overtone and am also ready for the hate mail. Bring it on, women!


"Dabangg" proved to a turning point of actor Sonu Sood's career, who played the main antagonist Chhedi Singh. Initially he was a part of the sequel too, but had to opt out because of date issues. Now, Prakash Raj has been roped in to play the antagonist. Made at a budget of approximately Rs.50 crore, the film is likely to release in over 3,000 screens.

After breaking box-office records with "Dabangg", actor Salman Khan is ready to entertain audiences in his popular avatar of Chulbul Pandey in "Dabangg 2", which releases this Friday. "Dabangg" was set in a village and had the rustic, rural flavour of Uttar Pradesh. The story this time around will shift to a posh metropolitan city. The sequel will see Chulbul Pandey to be transferred to a city, where he will mingle with the elite, but will retain his simplistic flavour and values. "Dabangg" having been a blockbuster, the buzz around the sequel is high too. The original movie was directed by Abhinav Kashyap, but he opted out of the sequel due to some issues, following which Salman's brother and producer Arbaaz Khan jumped in as the director.

The songs of "Dabangg 2" have also become popular, generating more interest in the film. While "Dabangg" had Malaika Arora Khan's "Munni badnam hui", "Dabangg 2" features actress Kareena Kapoor in item song "Fevicol Se", which is ruling the music charts already. Since the release of "Dabangg" in 2010, the movie and Chulbul Pandey have become a brand. Whether the sequel will be able to create the same magic as "Dabangg" remains to be seen. After the release of Shah Rukh Khan's "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" and Aamir Khan's "Talaash", both of which earned big bucks at the box-office, it would be interesting to see how "Dabangg 2" does at the box-office and which Khan takes the top slot.

Made under the banner of Arbaaz Khan Productions, "Dabangg 2" has been written by Dilip Shukla. This will be Arbaaz's first film as a director. The film will see Salman and Sonakshi Sinha again reprising their roles of Chulbul Pandey and Rajjo, while Vinod Khanna will feature as Prajapati Pandey, and Arbaaz as Makhanchan Pandey.

With DABANGG 2, you know exactly what to expect. But you don't know its premise till the reels unfold. Let me add, the plot is an extension of the first installment of the franchise. The route is very similar except that the antagonist is more influential and authoritative. DABANGG 2 is a typical Bollywood film. It's the kind of cinema we relished in the 1980s and enjoy to this date, but narrated in today's lingo and format. It may/may not make sense to you, but Arbaaz and team ensure that you are entertained. Thoroughly entertained, actually. It's riotous, outrageous, wacky, ambitious, absolutely madcap, transports you to an altogether different world. Add to it a sprinkling of desi songs, wicked sense of humor, with Chulbul Pandey taking on the antagonist like the vintage hero would -- with fearlessness and daredevilry. Actually, Chulbul Pandey has come to represent the common man and that’s yet another reason why you root for him, feel overjoyed and ecstatic when he triumphs in the finale. For those who adore masala movies, celebrate mainstream cinema, relish the cinema of yore and of course, hero-worship Salman Khan, DABANGG 2 is your ticket this festive season. DABANGG 2 begins with Chulbul Pandey moving to Kanpur. Once there, Chulbul gets into conflict with Baccha Bhaiyya [Prakash Raj]. Baccha Bhaiyya, a criminal turned politician, is aided by his two brothers, Chunni [Nikitin Dheer] and Gainda [Deepak Dobriyal]. Things take a turn for worse when Chulbul kills Gainda. the battle lines are drawn... Like I pointed out at the outset, DABANGG 2 is a hardcore masala entertainer that's desi at heart. The plot is *not* out of the box [it's the usual good versus evil saga], but it's completely irrelevant here. What camouflages this deficiency are several interesting episodes that Arbaaz and writer Dilip Shukla have integrated in those 2 + hours. These episodes, aimed at pleasing the hoi polloi and of course, Salman's die-hard fans and also fans of mainstream cinema, are, to put in filmi lingo, absolutely paisa vasool. In fact, Salman's star power is so so so strong that you're ready to overlook and forgive-and-forget any blemish that you may encounter in the movie. Yes, there are blemishes. The Arbaaz-Mahie Gill track is half-baked. The confrontation scenes

between Salman and Prakash Raj lack fiery dialogue. The songs, though popular, are integrated in the narrative without any valid situations. But these are cinematic licenses you overlook in a Salman movie. Arbaaz Khan, who makes his directorial debut with this film, knows his fundas right. He may have borrowed from the cinema of 1970s and 1980s, but he garnishes it well enough to suit the present-day sensibilities. Sajid-Wajid take the same route they undertook while making the soundtrack of DABANGG. Much like the content of the film, the songs are desi, with a mix of oldworld charm ['Dagabaaz Re' and 'Saanson Ne'] and foot-tapping numbers ['Pandeji Seeti' and 'Fevicol']. In fact, 'Fevicol' is already a rage and Kareena's presence in the song only acts as sone pe suhaaga. The action/stunts do complete justice to Salman's persona. The action plays a crucial role in a masala entertainer and adds so much power to those scenes. Dialogue are of mixed variety. Salman uses his fists, escapes the bullets, spews venom and threats, bullies the villain, flirts and romances his wife, does the pelvic thrusts... in fact, he does everything that one expects from Chulbul Pandey. Oh yes, he even takes off his shirt, flexing his muscles and showing his well sculptured torso without inhibitions, a mandatory requirement in a Salman Khan movie. Honestly speaking, DABANGG 2 is a Salman Khan vehicle and the actor is the Big Boss here. You cannot imagine anyone else doing what he does. And every time he plays to the gallery, many in the audience [especially at single screens] are sure to fling the loose change on screen as a mark of appreciation for his on-screen antics. He defies logic and gets away with it! Sonakshi has the infectious charm and radiates confidence all through the enterprise. Arbaaz is just about okay. Mahie Gill has nothing to do. Vinod Khanna is passable. Prakash Raj is in terrific form yet again. The supremely talented actor is ferocious when the need arises. Nikitin Dheer has good screen presence and does well. Deepak Dobriyal gets better scenes and is hugely competent. On the whole, DABANGG 2 has Salman Khan, Salman Khan and Salman Khan + Entertainment, Entertainment and Entertainment in large doses.

Aries (Mar. 20--Apr. 19) : Your energy is high and your mind is busy at this time. You want to enjoy things of beauty and romance now. It could be hard to concentrate upon mental work that requires attention to detail. If you must do so, then check everything twice. This is a week for the arts, for love, and for fun! Taurus (Apr. 20--May 19): An intense experience within a relationship has a purpose. You are asked to search deep inside yourself for your contribution to the difficulty, own it, and confess it. Healing will be the result for you and probably the Other. It is a good time to adjust issues of power. Gemini (May 20 -- June 20) : This is a highly significant period in your primary relationship(s). There are issues to work through and healing to do for both of you. Sidestep the temptation to drill your truth into the mind of another. If you do not share a consensus reality, then search for a higher perspective that includes both. Cancer (June 21--Jul y 21) : You could be having unusually intense feelings about yourself and your direction in life. In some way it is important to hold onto the truth of who you are and not allow another to tell you what he/she wants you to be. Remember that you are a far greater being than the secular world may allow.

Libra (Sep. 23--Oct. 22) This is a very good time to communicate with family members and those very close to you. The environment and circumstances each contribute to allowing things to be said honestly, without fear of rebuke or attack in any form. New agreements and understandings can be created. Scorpio (Oct. 23--Nov. 21) : Those who are in school or studying something more personal have favorable aspects. You have significant energy this month and many things are changing. You are unlikely to find solid ground during this period, so glide with the flow and trust that it will take you where you need to go. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 --Dec. 20) : Issues concerning your primary relationship are absolutely front and center now. This might also include the needs of your clientele. It is as though you can’t take a step forward without resolving this issue. Yet there are so many balls in the air there is a chance you might drop one. Take a deep breath and take it easy. Everything comes to pass in its own time. Capricorn ( Dec 21 -- Jan 19) : Giving attention to your health is important at this time. You have so many temptations all around that it may feel impossible, but do your utmost best. This week may be overshadowed by so many things you “have to” do, but give yourself plenty of rest and take your vitamins.

Leo (July 22 --Aug. 21): This is the time of year in which you try to do too much, take care of everyone, and often forget to include yourself in the equation. Now is the time to check with your internal sensors. Is it truly necessary to manage every last detail? If your energy level is low, give yourself a break from the usual routine. Your body will reward you for the sacrifice.

Aquarius (Jan. 20--Feb. 17) : The symbols suggest that you may be hooked into a drama triangle during this period. In a drama triangle there is a victim, a perpetrator, and a rescuer. Sometimes they alternate roles. It is dysfunctional behavior and generally leads to a disappointing outcome in which nobody wins. If you can “see” this happening in your life, step out of the triangle and take a new path. Don’t play the game.

Virgo (Aug 22--Sep. 22) : This looks like a week in which you really want to say your piece, but you have a sense that would be a bad idea. I agree, if you feel so upset that you can’t present your case with compassion. But if you give attention to everyone’s feelings and present it tactfully, you could accomplish a breakthrough in understanding with the family.

Pisces (Feb. 18--Mar. 19) : For any number of reasons, circumstances may leave you out of the social loop this week. Astrologically this is a time for selfreflection andnot self-condemnation. Having a quiet week is appropriate at this time. Don’t turn this into a negative belief about yourself. Take the opportunity to enjoy the time to be still.
